    Honoré des Près - I Love les Carottes, a "vegetable fougère".
    It took several tries to like it, but now I'm on board. It's organic, but with good lasting power, it's odd, but not pretentiously so and it seems humorous to me. Carrot juice?! Yes it actually works as a perfume.

    I know I already mentioned the Jubilation. However, Christmas came early at the Gae house this year, and my folks just gifted me with L'Ether de Iunx. The presentation and packaging is stunning, by the way.

    5-600€ worth of books for my next semester Studying law is expensive... My frag purchases have been seriously hampered by the book prices, but I hope to squeeze a bottle of GIT into my budget

    Good luck with your law studies, Norstrom. When you've finished them, you'll have many more opportunities to add to your fragrance collection!

    I have one more crazy purchase to make and I think that will be it for 2011. I have to start thinking about 2012.

    I just bought my Christmas present to myself today. I had a code to get %15 off a Bond No.9 purchase. I decided not to wait until next month just in case they didn't have the same offer. I bought a bottle of NY Amber, which smells absolutely amazing to me and on me! I got a sample of NY Amber from my last purchase. I sprayed a spot on my arm, using my application method, before I went to sleep yesterday. When I woke up, you could still smell the scent on my arm. I was like OMG! I have to have this. I can't wait to spray that sucker 15+ times LMAO!! Naw, I definitely won't have to spray that many times with this one I'm sure. I just love frags like this during the cold months. I can't wait!! Let me go see if they sent me a tracking number LOL!

    Follow-up to OP: the Patou Pour Homme arrived today, and damn - it is fine stuff.

    I have been nearly saintly good this month, and Santa Claus has agreed that I deserve it. Bout to indulge in a little Serge Lutens year-end binge. . .

    I'll be traveling to the Netherlands prior to Christmas. There seems to be very good places to indulge in perfumerie (thanx for all the info Bonoanimoes ). I am debating myself to get one (maybe two ) from the following:

    -Lyric, Reflection, Memoir, or Epic (Amouage)
    -Cuir Beluga (Guerlain)
    -LDDM (Tauer)

    Purchases for myself are some Creed samples (stocking stuffer), couple miniatures eg Egoiste, Tuscany, DK Men, and a bottle of Michael Kors for men. With the exception of the Creeds these are fragrances I am revisiting that I once received for Christmas.

    l can never resist buying myself a present. l've already bought Dior Addict, & with my Christmas money l'm planning some decants of the (very expensive) perfumes on my wish list for New Year.

    LOL @ JoeP and comments, especially "well-deserved"!

    Ken_Russel -- L'Erbolario is a good solid line, with their prices one can't go wrong.

    hednic, great plan, nice winter possibilities! Will it make your total bottle count around 10K?

    For me, I originally intended to buy a few bottles from Provence Sante but after testing and re-testing some, the plan has been changed: the only one from the entire line (Tilleul) will be purchased sometime closer to springtime. There is also a thought of replenishing two or three of the fragrances I have almost finished: Mauboussin, Chanel Beige, SL Arabie.

    Still undecided about FM Therese or Dior Diorella (when/if I can find an older version of the latter). Another idea lurking on the back of my mind is Hermes Rouge.
